French Fries are magical, just like Unicorns, and while they aren’t rare, they are definitely the one food group that can be eaten at any time and at any meal.
Are you ready to meet the new and interesting ways to eat your French Fries.
Bacon Cheese Fries
This is the ultimate variation of French Fries, because can you imagine just how good this balance would be? Melt the cheese, so that it’s stringy and stretchy and then cook the bacon till it’s crisp. Once the fries are ready, mix the cheese and bacon with the fries and serve. Best eaten hot, while the cheese is still melting!
Minced meat made into gravy and then poured over fries. What can be better than a bowl of crisp fries with beef poured over it? Sure, you could replace the beef with chicken or mutton or maybe even a vegetarian gravy that appeals to you. Or you can serve it dry, either works!
The ideal breakfast is bacon, bread and eggs. So why not replace the bread with fries? Your fries don’t have to be crisp, just make sure that you add enough salt and pepper before you toss it all into a bowl. Then top with bacon and mix again, then finally just before you serve, add the fried egg and bam, breakfast done.
If you’ve never made Curly Fries before, that’s okay! We’ve got an easy way for you to do it. Cut your potatoes into long strips and then wrap it around a skewer, then deep fry them. Set them aside to cool and mix up the powder and finally spread it over the fries and it’s ready to serve once you remove it from the skewer.
Garlic Truffle Fries
Slice the potatoes and drizzle with truffle olive oil, salt & pepper and toss to combine. Then stick it in the oven for about 40 minutes till golden brown and then combine the fries with crushed garlic or garlic powder.
Mac & Cheese Fries
This is the perfect treat for a rainy day. Make your Mac & Cheese (heavy on the cheese) and make your fries, then toss them all together till the fries are nicely coated with the cheese and serve. You can top it with some bacon or shredded chicken and everything is done.
This one is really easy, because it takes you a total of 30 minutes to get it all together. Once your fries are ready, toss them in paprika and some salt and ta da, all ready and delicious to consume.
Parmesan Truffle Fries
Just like the garlic fries, this one follows the same process. Instead of tossing it with garlic, add some grated Parmesan and mix it all together. Top with some chopped parsley and it’s ready for you.
A famous Canadian dish, Poutine isn’t always going to be made the right way because you might not have the right ingredients. Make the beef gravy while you’re making your fries and once your fries are ready, sprinkle cheese over it and then before it cools, add the beef gravy to the dish and serve right away.
